Members of Frecheville Cricket Club swapped their bats for golf clubs as they teed off and raised £4,000 for St Luke’s Hospice.

The fifth annual Slaphead Golf Open was organised by Melanie Watkinson and members of the Cricket Club in memory of Melanie’s brother Roger Hobson and other friends who had received the support of Sheffield’s only hospice.

The event is held at Birley Wood Golf Club and since 2009 has raised more than £30,000 for St Luke’s and other charities throughout the city.
